  5. 5. services: design concepts and reviews Good design principles applied to car parks result in a significant competitive advantage. Applying international best design practice and extensive car park design experience, our designers work as an integral part of the development team, alongside project architects and traffic engineers. Our objectives are to ensure that your car park’s space efficiency is maximised, whilst optimizing traffic circulation, pedestrian safety and convenience. It is not uncommon for our design reviews to result in increased efficiency and reduction in capital costs by up to 15% and still provide users with an improved parking experience.
  6. 6. services: income projections and feasibility studies We are specialists in the financial analysis of parking and in the preparation of revenue and expense projections. Property owners, investors and developers rely on our demand and income projections to guide them with decisions, ranging from introducing paid parking in hospitals and shopping centres, to capital raisings and analysis of investment opportunities. PCI also conducts focused market research to ensure that any decisions on car park capacity are based on actual and expected demand rather than determined by Authority codes.
  7. 7. services: equipment, signage selection and tendering Effective access and revenue control, security and wayfinding will help to maximise your car park’s revenue and to improve user convenience. Any technology must be designed specifically to the needs of the individual car park and those of its intended customers. Our independent recommendations are based on identifying the unique needs of each car park and meeting those needs with the most appropriate equipment configuration. PCI will provide an evaluation of both the quantitative and qualitative elements of tenders from equipment suppliers, ensuring that you are able to make the most appropriate decision for the particular property. Most important is the quality and reliability of the on- going servicing and maintenance of the equipment post installation.
  8. 8. services: refurbishment and upgrading Customers expect a clean, safe and bright car park environment. A car park is often the ‘front door’ to a property and therefore a positive experience reflects on the property as a whole. Our team offers innovative design and refurbishment recommendations and upgrading packages which eliminate the bare concrete shell appearance of many car parks. Painting, lighting and appropriate floor finishes all contribute to a feeling of safety, cleanliness and comfort, which in turn have a positive impact on the car park’s financial “bottom line”. Technological developments must also be analysed and evaluated to ensure that customers’ increasing expectations are being addressed in a timely and cost-effective manner.
  9. 9. services: audits and performance reviews (financial and operational) A well managed and controlled car park can contribute significantly to a property’s value. Cash handling, inadequate equipment and poor systems and procedures can lead to revenue leakage or operator leniency going undetected. Our consultants’ extensive awareness and understanding of car park operations and equipment can help to eliminate losses, to provide optimisation of expenses and consequently to maximize net income. By applying best practice accounting controls and a comprehensive “checks and balances” review, detailed financial and operational reports are compiled determining an accurate profit review of your car park. The cost of a specialised audit is likely to be only a fraction of the potential additional net income from a car park which is not comprehensively controlled. Operational reviews assist owners in identifying areas in the car park management practices which may have become “routine tasks” due to focus on the car parking dropping off over extended periods of time.
  10. 10. services: management tenders The right car park management will ensure customer satisfaction and profitability. PCI prides itself on extensive experience in the management of car parks and in the preparation of tenders. We can help you evaluate the comparative merits of outsourcing and in-house management. If an external management solution is recommended, PCI can conduct the tender process for either a management contract or lease. Recommendations will include structuring the financial aspects of the agreement in order to obtain a mutually beneficial solution for owner and operator. If self-management is the preferred alternative we would assist you in the selection and training of staff and in the preparation of operational manuals and reporting packages.
  11. 11. services: project management When it comes to start-ups and management handovers, professional and timely PCI planning and project management can deliver significant benefits. Our team can also assist with implementing and monitoring parking related projects, new equipment installations, introduction of paid parking in previously uncontrolled car parks and first day operations.
  12. 12. services: marketing Our consultants' hands-on car park management experience means we can give you cost effective advice on marketing which will boost your car park’s income and provide you with a competitive advantage. Our strategies are based on growing your market through a better understanding of your local market and existing customer base. These insights will translate into increased customer awareness, competitive pricing structures, heightened productivity per car space, and a marketing program to market permanent spaces.
